Post in Oily Skin

Best products for acne-prone skin with blackheads?

Hi, I'm looking for facial care products -- cleanser, exfoliator, scrub, mask, treatment, moisturizer, etc. -- that work for oily, acne-prone skin with large pores and blackheads. I've seen products that either help acne or minimize pores, but it's very difficult to find products that help with BOTH at the same time. Also, I would like gentle products that do the job, as my skin can be somewhat sensitive. Please help! Thanks!

 Ive found that neutrogeina (sorry for spelling) blackhead scrub that you can get at a drugstore works very well!

You use it either as a cleanser (if its all over your face) or after your normal cleanser in problem areas (for example i just use it on my nose)!

I would recommend Clinique's "Acne Solutions" line of products.  They make some great skincare products (I love their foaming cleanser) and I will list a few below:

You can get the three above items in a set together to try out (and save money by getting them in a set) called "Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Kit" and you can find it at:  http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P188308​&categoryId=B70

Acne Solutions even makes a liquid foundation, concealer and other makeup products also.  The Acne Solutions products are gentle on sensitive skin, too.

I hope this helps you. Smiley Happy

To control blackheads, for me nothing has ever come close to using the Clarisonic Mia.  A product with benzyol peroxide, or glycolic acid is helpful as well.  I have been using Perricone's Cold Plasma, which works very well to minimize pores and eliminate blackheads.  Hope this is helpful.

I follow with Perricone MD Power Couple (if you do not need the firming activator you can buy just the pore minizer)

For mositurizers I use both Boscia Oil Free Daily & Nightly Hydration

Boscia has a kit that you can buy to try their products for $36.00 (this is what I did).

Since I started all of these products close to the same time I can not tell you which product is the best but this combination has worked the best for me. You can barely see my pores any more. The occassional breakouts and blackheads have also disappeared now that my skin is a lot cleaner than it was before. I did use another cleaner one morning and my skin did not get as clean as when I use the Boscia gel. This just reenforced my opinion of the cleaner.

Good Luck!
